Right-wing firebrand Ann Coulter related her disappointment with President Donald Trump in a blog post that also mocked Sean Hannity for allegedly censoring her criticism on his show.
Coulter appeared on Sean Hannity’s show but said that her comments criticizing the presence of former Goldman Sachs’ executives were cut out of the show. Hannity responded on Twitter that they had merely ran out of time on the show and cut her comments for brevity’s sake.
I have done more to help promote you and your books which I like over the years. No CONSPIRACY. THERE ARE TIME CONSTRAINTS ON TV. https://t.co/zhem0bIGFd

Coulter did not appear to accept the explanation in her blog post published Wednesday.
“Sean Hannity, bless his heart,” she writes, “has the zeal of the late Trump convert. He would endorse communism if Trump decided to implement the policies of “The Communist Manifesto.” (Which the GOP’s health care bill actually does!)”
On his show last Thursday, he tried to get me to defend Trump’s “rich person” remarks about Cohn. I wish you could see the segment, but, unfortunately, Hannity decided no one would ever see it — NOT, I hasten to add, because he would ever censor criticism of Trump, but simply because he ran out of time.
In a pre-taped interview. It was a time problem. (It may not be evident to most viewers, but three minutes MUST be left at the end of every Hannity show for Nerf football throwing.)
Coulter also warned Trump that the influence of Wall Street was one of the few things that could erode the faith of his otherwise unshakeable supporters. She cited a recent focus group with voters from Macomb County in Michigan.
However, one fact, and one fact only, shook their faith: when they were told that his Cabinet was “full of campaign donors, Goldman Sachs bankers (bailed out by the taxpayers) and people who use undocumented workers in their homes.”
Hearing that, these devoted Trump voters called him “two-faced,” a “puppet” and sadly remarked, “It’s going to be a lot of the same old garbage.”
Trump knows this. His guilty conscience propelled him to stray from his standard rally speech in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, last week, and go into what seemed like an endless soliloquy on his chief economic adviser, Goldman Sachs’ Gary Cohn. (Not to be confused with his Treasury Secretary, Goldman Sachs’ Steve Mnuchin, or his deputy national security adviser, Goldman Sachs’ Dina Powell. These are the people the media call the “grown-ups” in Trump’s administration.)
The Cedar Rapids crowd was thrilled to see Trump. They would have cheered his tie. They would have cheered the humidity. But his lengthy disquisition on Cohn? Crickets.
President Trump has not weighed in on the feud or the controversy over what Coulter sees as oversized influence in his administration by Wall Street.
